What to Do if You Are Sick

When you may have a respiratory virus:
Stay home and away from others if you have respiratory virus symptoms that aren’t explained by another cause. These symptoms can include fever, chills, fatigue, cough, runny nose, and headache, among others.
You can go back to your normal activities when your symptoms are improving and you have been fever free without medication for 24 hours.
When you go back to your normal activities the CDC recommends you take added precautions over the next 5 days. These include; physical distancing, masking, good hygiene, testing for Covid or Influenza, and steps to keep air cleaner.

Students: Call Health Services (574) 372-5100 ext. 6472 if you are interested in testing for COVID-19 or need to see the campus nurse. If you are feeling unwell after hours contact the Resident Director on call (574) 635-5737. If your symptoms are moderate to severe you may seek care at Medstat, Parkview Urgent Care, Physicians Urgent Care, or the emergency room. If this is an emergency please call 911.

Contact Tracing

Grace is no longer conducting contact tracing but we strongly recommend that students who test positive for COVID-19 notify their close contacts.
